[applause] >> four years ago, at this convention, i spoke with you all about how barack and i did not grow up with much in the wake of wealth. but we were blessed with a mother who taught us that education is the surest path from limited means to limitless opportunity. she inspired me to become a teacher and she inspired barack's deep commitment to giving all our young people the opportunity is our education ga

tomorrow with first lady michelle obama the headliner and the keynote address from san antonio mayor julio castro. this week, democrats will try to highlight what they consider president obama's first-term successes, but there is this nagging question they're struggling to answer -- are you better off today than you were four years ago? cnn's dana bash joins me right now. seems like just yesterday we were on the floor of the republican convention in tampa. >> it does. wasn't it yesterday? speaking of yesterday, let's go back many yesterdays ago to four years ago, and that is really what, as you mentioned, the republicans have been pressing for democrats, and it is the key question for democrats to answer -- are you better off? obama officials have been kind of -- it's been tough for them to answer the question, but one democrat who's usually pretty good at staying on message went off message a little bit, and that is martin o'malley, the governor of maryland, who also is the head of the democratic governors association. listen to what he said. >> can you honestly say that people are better
talks about the first lady, michelle obama. you'll hear what he has to say. in that time there've been some good days. and some difficult ones. but, through it all, we've persevered, supporting some of the biggest ideas in modern history. so why should our anniversary matter to you? because for 200 years, we've been helping ideas move from ambition to achievement. and the next great idea could be yours. ♪ >>> education and job training, it only works if there's a strong middle class. that's what happened when i was president. we need to keep going with his plan. through menopause. these symptoms may be nothing... but they could be early warning signs of a gynecologic cancer, such as cervical, ovarian, or uterine cancer. feeling bloated for no reason. that's what i remember. seeing my doctor probably saved my life. warning signs are not the same for everyone. if you think something's wrong... see your doctor. ask about gynecologic cancer. and get the inside knowledge. >>> republican nominee mitt romney has been hunkered down in a friend's mansion in vermont. getting ready for the next
it the walkthrough. they get to practice a bit on the the teleprompter. you see that to the side of michelle obama. reading off of a teleprompter is an unnatural act. it's not easy to do. you have to move your head back and forth and keep following along and engage the audience at the same time, which is not easy, and engage the television audience. she's getting applause right now. >> and she's practicing a little bit. as important as the reception she gets for the 20,000 or 25,000 delegates and guests inside the arena, what's sho much more important is the reception sh gets from the 40 or 50 million viewers out there, many of them still undecided. >> and i think the bar is set pretty high for her. she now has this many years later quite a bit of public speaking experience. she tends to do pretty well, i think you'll agree, when she's speaking at events. large events, small events. thinks going to be one of the speeches most anticipated throughout this entire week. >> and ann romney gave a good speech in tampa. >> both will reach out to the all important women voters. president obama has a dozen
. michelle obama is set to appear on dr. oz's daytime talk show today to talk about healthy exercise and eating on the campaign trail. the first lady reportedly stands up on the set and teaches dr. oz how to do the dougie. >> bill: oh, my god. that is just an internet sensation. >> yeah. >> bill: thank you, dan. yes indeed just getting off of politics a tad this morning here to start the day. we always think about the big stories and the stories that people are talking about or going to be talking about today and you are going to be talking about today. it is any front page of the "washington post" this morning, and the headline is "a breastfeeding quiz." it is okay to best feed in class when you are a teacher in front of your class? that's the question. it's a young professor after american university here in washington, d.c. who did this, and a lot of people raising the question was this over the line? and i ask you that question. 866-55-press, but first let's just settle back and find out the facts. okay. here it is. a young professor, her name is adrian pine, s
. michelle obama gave a very personal and good speech for her husband. president obama is will give a wonderful speech tonight he is very good. and at the end of the day this is what happen what matters. monday we have the announcement that gas prices doubled and we have the highest labor in the country. and we have the highest deficit. when the speeches are done tonight tomorrow we will get the jobs report and it will show 43 months in a row over 8% unemployment. 23 million americans are out of work. at the end of the day, the speakers are nice and this is a serious election in serious times. and it comes down to whether or not president obama's policies have worked and when you look at the numbers by any real measure you have to say they have not worked. >> so the campaign seemed to be painting two different visions of america. based on perhaps similar experiences that people have undergone over the last couple of years. the romney campaign says perhaps are you not better off than you were four years ago and the obama campaign is saying listen it is tough but we inherited a deep m

the point, brian, to make about the security standards here. you can't go to a michelle obama campaign event without showing your i.d somehow these guys are traipsing in and out of the white house and, of course, i've been reporting on the incomplete nature of these white house visitor logs for so long, i discovered this guy's name and it turned up that he has visited in march. where is the lap dog media talk being this? one more point about this guy, he turns out to be a major funder of the center for constitutional rights. that is the left wing law firm that has sprung so many gitmo detainees and has been proud of it and guess what? one of the detainees that they're responsible for springing is kumu, the guy who is now considered the lead suspect in the benghazi attacks. full circle. if you don't collect the dots, you can't connect the dots. >> gretchen: there has been much made about the differing opinions and reasoning given by the obama administration about what actually happened there. so at first it was not a terrorist attack. then jay carney said that it was an obvious terrorist atta
-election. michelle obama did as bill clinton and former michigan governor, jennifer granholm. this president is using socialist euphemisms, fair share, fair shot, dividing america, not using hope and change rhetoric he was so powerful for using four years before and able to get elected by such a wide march begin then. this is frustrating true believers the dowds of the left really are. whatever they may have felt four years ago they have been backing this president up every turn. >> she was never a true wleefr. martha: let me interject here. in the ericson piece written by one of his reporters at red state he talks about whether or not the president is relevant. goes to issues showing up in this maureen dowd piece which is whether or not he was one making the change that he was seeking. and when you look at bob woodward's book it gives a couple of examples that time nancy pelosi was talking to him about the budget. according to woodward's reporting she put the president on mute so that the people in the room could continue their conversation while he was espousing something. she says that is not true

profiles i have seen over michele obama. this is a slow rising tide. david gregory didn't get the job just because he was a white male. he is someone who had been a white house correspondent for nbc. he had the skills that were necessary to be a good broadcaster and a good interviewer. the time will come when those jobs will be again available, and there will be a much wider range of people who will be eligible for them. one of them could very well be an african-american. it may be an asian american. i'm not sure. it may be a hispanic american. we are seeing more presents of people with different ethnic backgrounds than just white, anglo and protestant. bryant gumbel succeeded me on "the today show" as the african-american host of "the today show", for example. >> host: for scrotal organ, please go ahead with your question or comment. >> caller: i come from a different journalist background than you, but i feel equally crucial to americans and how they should know what is going on in their world. i was a reporter and an editor at a small, medium-sized weeklies in dailies over the nation fo

to "doesn't she get it?" or "imagine if michelle obama said that." it was probably not something that the campaign wanted as a structure of a statement. she was talking about her husband and talking about seeing her husband. the responses that you chose to run for office. what we demand of our candidates is a lot. even for the criticism that he is getting about not doing enough in terms of events, he is doing a tremendous number of fund-raising, having a discussion about whether we should do other things. it is incredibly hard and incredibly grueling. it is impressive that they don't make more mistakes and off-cue moments. myan't imagine watching husband go through that. my husband being very protective of me when they are critical. >> my family loves reading by criticism. why do you get so upset about it? i think that they are thinking it. i will say that ann romney is feisty. i love what she did because it is so he a man at the helm tamp they don't her down too much. -- because she is so human, i hope they don't tamp her down too much. she is looking right at you, our eyes are

is one that i will not spend as much time saying it is not fair for you to report obama is ahead. i would more likely say to you that one of the reasons obama is ahead in these polls is because the news media is asking him questions about tucking michele in at night instead of asking questions about why his administration is bumbling security in libya -- questions about tucking michelle in at night. we have news media celebrating obama as some sort of celebrity instead of treating him like the president of united states. host: back to the phones and our conversation with tim graham, director of media analysis at the media research center. you are on the "washington journal." caller: i just would like to impress on the people who are listening to this to educate yourselves, please. this man and fox news run a manipulative, mind-control tactic, and that is why there is almost nothing truthful that comes from fox news. host: how is the reporting that comes from fox news different than the reporting that comes from cnn or msnbc? caller: it is another tactic. host: by whom? caller: by you. you
her happy. -- michelle in there for another four years to keep her happy. it looks like obama will be reelected in we will have to work 20% on currency, and that will adjust things immediately. it will set the world on its fanny for a while. host: lower the currency 20%. what do you make of that? guest: there are two currency questions here. we a long alleged china is manipulating its currency. i think the calller might have been referring to recent actions by the fed. could that affect on u.s. currency? i would rather not touch that, because it is not something i am an expert on. there are plenty of qualified people that are more inept at speaking to that. i will speak to my first point, the point that they can have their cake and eat it, too. i think what the calller is referring to is something that president obama and mitt romney both agree on, republicans and democrats both agree on is since china has joined the wto, it has not lived up to all of the rules. that is bipartisan consensus. that is why their books on china that is why they say i will make sure they live up to
in terms of what we look at. between obamamania -- obama and mitt romney, and they are both indian -- obama and romney, they are both in the two range. michele bachmann -- i do not know what it necessarily tells you, but it is sort of a fun thing to look at. it does provide you links to every single fact check that i or my colleagues have done for the candidates. >> excuse me. >> good morning. david, george mason university. i think we have seen in the campaign so far that both candidates are in the position of being challenged. flip-plopped positions. i have noticed so far that both governor romney and president obama, when challenged by a voter or a journalist, it is not to say, "well, the facts have changed at the facts are different. the facts i look at now are not the facts that existed when that was my belief." instead, there are levels of equivocation or bluff. i think one latino group challenged him on keeping the promise of immigration reform that he intended to make. right then and there, i was hoping the president would say, "well, the picture is different. let's look get it impe
that in this world you need to be engaged and he is engaged smartly. >> ok. next, i want to introduce michelle. she served as undersecretary of defense for policy from february 2009 to february of this year. prior to her confirmation, she helped lead president obama's transition team at the department of defense. in 2007, she co-founded the organization that doug just referred to. the non-partisan think tank, center for a new american security. republican states like virginia, notably, are using the intended sequesters up against their democratic opponents, even though the republicans were part of the deal. i want to ask you, how serious should we take this and is there anything democrats can do in response? >> i think we do have to be worried about the prospect of sequestration not only because it would impose additional cuts across the board, but to the mindless way in which the cuts would be imposed. it is across the board cuts. no opportunity to protect priorities. choose for your point to except. -- choose where you are going to accept. it would be devastated across the board. we do have to re
there next to the iranians and that program is moving very, very fast. >> listen to what michelle florny, a president of the president campaign national security committee says in defining the way they perceive -- the obama administration perceives this so-called red line. it's very different than the way the prime minister explained it today. >> well, i think we have laid out a red line. and that is iran cannot actually get a weapon. >> that's very different than what the prime minister says. she's willing to give it more time as opposed to reaching that 90% threshold which is the israeli position. >> i think you have to look at what the prime minister how he framed it today, wolf. he said the question is not when iran gets a weapon or even decides to make a weapon. the question is at what point can we no longer stop iran from making that weapon? and that's what that red line was about. he was drawing a line between the medium enriched uranium and the high enriched uranium and beyond that point it will be virtually impossible for us to stop that bomb because they will put that bomb toge
of government from a democracy to a conservative christian theocracy and that's why we need to have barack obama and joe biden reelected. because it's terrifying people like paul ryan and mitt romney and michele bachmann, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. rig perry. these are scary, scary people who change our form of government into the conservative christian theocracy by blasting what to say as an atheist i want to say to that woman on the republican line, us atheists as was agnostics are amplified by christians much, much, much more than the church of latter day saints, the mormons are vilified by people like she said, bill clinton and other people. believe me, atheists are the last as well as gays, atheists are specially the last people this country still be vilified and put down and psychologically and physically tortured by right wing christians are in the bill, as an atheist are you enjoying coverage of the values voter summit? >> caller: i'm watching it very skeptically. when they talk about values, like i said, it's a very values they want to impose on the country by legislation. being a
coordinated. >> steve: michelle, clearly romney's statement was devastating to the president of the united states where he said, you know, you can't have the embassy sending out these apology notes because it was devastating to obama because now the main stream media is screaming bloody murder. >> yeah, that's right. and just to take this more bigger picture, you've got this petty, partisan, sniping left dog media and they cannot see the bigger picture here. and provide the proper context in reporting on what's going on in the middle east now. here they are all fixated on terry jones, they're falling for the propaganda of these islamic imperialists when it has nothing to do with this obscure internet video, clips of which have been floating around since june. the providence of which is still under question. and they report it anyway as if that's what's really going on here when there is a larger pretext going on and manufacturing. the fact that they still call these protests when these are violent attacks that have been happening. >> brian: when the coptic christians were having their chur
looked at. for both mitt romney and obama, they are both in the 2% range. there is not much difference. for the republican primary candidates, there were some that were higher than others. michelle bachmann, i think, had the highest. >> we had a self-imposed michelle bachmann " at some point during the debates. -- michelle bachmann quota during the debates. >> but again, i do not know what it tells you. it does provide something interesting to look at. it does provide links to every single fact check that i or my colleagues have done for all of the presidential candidates. >> george mason university. i think we have seen both candidates in a vulnerable position of being challenged on flip-flops' of position or permanence not kept. i have noticed so far that the tendency of both governor romney and president obama, when challenged by a voter or a journalist, is to not attempt to say, well, the facts have changed. the facts are different. the fact that i look at now are not the fact that existed when that was my belief. instead, there are various levels of equivocation and bluff. one rec

"led the honeymoon commence." it is fun to have this levy elephant. this is one thing that drives me nuts. bloomberg and the city council voted that he was right and they outlawed big drinks. you have bloomberg floating down as mary compensating "drop it, chubs!" this is when donald trump endorsed mitt romney. he is saying "you had me at i don't care about poor pepole." "we must consider deep cuts to the $70 billion green defense budget." "and it was working so well." "strike the solar panels." this primary season was one of the most interesting because they did not want mitt romney. did they want to rick santorum? really? "something like this could make a lesser fella question his inevitability." this was the front-runner, mitt.
